Vegetarian Crisp Candied Sweet Potatoes 6 large sweet potato
2 tablespoons margarine
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup water
pinch ground ginger
Place potatoes in a large pan; cover with cold water. Bring to a boil; cook 10 minutes. Plunge potatoes into cold water to stop cooking. When cool enough to handle, peel and discard skin. Cut potatoes into thick slices or chunks; refrigerate. (If desired, this can be done the day before.)
In a large nonstick skillet, melt margarine. Add brown sugar, water, salt, and ginger. Bring to a simmer; add half of potato slices in one layer. Cook at a slow boil over medium heat until potatoes are brown and crisp around edges. Turn; brown other side. With a slotted spoon, transfer potatoes to a platter; reserve in a warm place near the stove. Add remaining potatoes to skillet; cook as the first batch. Serve immediately.
